Women’s Ministry

Welcome to the HBC Women’s Ministry!

Whether you are a new visitor or a long-time member, we want to welcome you to Heritage and help get you connected to the life of the church. Because the gospel is absolutely essential to HBC’s mission, it is the foundation upon which we build our Women’s Ministry. Our purpose is to come alongside the leadership of Heritage to disciple women through gospel-centered worship, gospel-formed community, and gospel-driven service.

Our foundational verses are II Thessalonians 1:11-12:

“To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Gospel-Formed Community 

Cookie Swap for Widows/Widowers

All ladies are invited to our annual cookie swap in which we pack tins to deliver to our special HBC widows and widowers! Join us on Thursday, December 12th at 7:00pm at the Hartman home to pack the tins. Please bring 3 dozen of your favorite Christmas cookie. Tins are provided. Address is 2816 Fairmount Ave. Contact Samantha Hartman at 215-808-4520 with questions.


Because we are intentional about offering “life on life” discipleship opportunities, we’ve found that gospel-formed community and gospel-driven service most frequently go hand-in-hand! Discipleship occurs in a variety of ways, but the focus is the same: to develop fully devoted followers of Christ. Sometimes, these discipleship relationships develop organically through community groups, Morning Break, or bible studies. At other times, the HBC Women’s Ministry can intentionally partner you with a mature follower of Christ to come alongside you in your walk with Christ.

If you are interested in an individual discipleship opportunity, whether as a “discipler” or a “disciplee,” please email the church office at info@hbclakeland.com.

Community Life

“Community Life” events are offered quarterly as a way to connect with other HBC women and serve. Sometimes these are “Service Nights” where we gather to meet the needs of others. Other times, we come together for fellowship and a fun event to help HBC women get connected. Contact Sarah Purcell at sarah.b.purcell@gmail.com with questions or if you would like to help serve!


Gospel-Driven Service


“S.O.S. “ (Serve our Seniors) is a service group which exists to meet the needs of our older folks at HBC. In the fall, SOS is launching a new ministry called “Connecting Across Generations.” The purpose of this ministry is to connect families and individuals with a special senior for purposes of encouragement, fellowships, and meeting needs. If you are interested in helping out with S.O.S. contact Natasha Johnson at nlthorpe@msn.com.

Widows Walk

“Widows Walk” is a special ministry of HBC geared towards ladies who have lost their husband. This group of women comes together six times a year for fellowship and encouragement as they face the unique challenges of losing a spouse. Each meeting is specially planning with a program and luncheon to encourage the hearts of our widows. If you are interested in attending Widows Walk or would like to serve at this ministry, please contact Jean Weaver at jweaver761@gmail.com.
